Mrs. Shepherd - 6th Grade Social Science
Welcome to 6th grade social science!
This year we are learning about geography and the ancient civilizations, through inquiry based learning. Students will make connections between ancient history and our world today. Students will look for patterns as to how history tends to repeat itself. Each quarter your child will complete a final inquiry project that must be turned in 2 weeks prior to the end of the quarter. This is a major part of students' final standard marks.
Please check your emails for an invite to ClassDojo.com. This is an amazing site that allows you to view your child's behavior and homework completion on a daily basis. A world of difference is made when teachers and parents work together! If I do not have your email address, please email me for an invite to this wonderful program. You can download the ClassDojo app on your phone for easy access or login to your parent account from a computer. I hope to receive an email from you soon. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Please download the Sangha app to receive important updates and announcements throughout the school year!
